How to attach upholstery attachment

I bought the Hoover F5914-900 SteamVac SpinScrub from a garage sale today. It seems to be in great shape, and has the tube and attachments, but I can't figute out how to attach the part that should go into the lower collection unit. The tube has a place where it is obvious, but I can't figure out how the end away from the collection (hand tool) part is attached to the unit. It didn't come with a manual, and I can't find one online. Can anyone help me? Thanks so much if you can!

    I attached all the parts for the hand attachment, but the lid does not seal well enough for proper suction.

You are trying to put the tool on upside down. The half moon should be towards the bottom , just like a big smile, the tool attachment sits up off the bottom, I know I was trying to force it down in the wrong direction too. Hope this makes sense to you.

Take the lid off the recovery tank. In the front of the tank, there is a square duct that can be lifted out. The end of the hose should have a half-moon shaped piece that will fit into that space and then you replace the lid. Attach the smaller hose to the valve located under the little square door on the right hand side of the hood just in front of the corner of the tank. Return the handle to the upright position and you should be able to use it. Don't lose the square duct you removed. You will have to replace it after in order to go back to the floor function.

SOURCE: SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub won't stay upright or collect water

(1) Upright: Sounds like the tab on the lower handle that the handel release latches to has broken off. The machine is fully functional without it otherwise.

(2) Assure the ring gasket is in place under the hood. A round rubber gasket must be in place on the round tube under the hood where the recovery tank sits to connect the vacuum from the motor to the round tube on the bottom of the tank.

to see if I can help. Even though this a Informational site may not have your exact model or brand, But this site will help you a lot. Here is the site link about everything you want to know about vacuum cleaners and possibly yours, from repair to trouble shooting it.

Please if this helped you at all, if you can find the time and in your heart to rate my help and some kind words written would be appreciated for my free help, I would appreciate it. Like I said I just tried to help, If anything this is good information for future problems. If you felt that my free help was a waist of time for you, I'm sorry.I do not get paid to help people on the site, I do it cause I like to help.

Here is also my direct link to my own pages of other areas of my expertise for other problems you might have in Automotive, Appliance, and Electronics. Drop In anytime for my help.

Thanks, Mike

How do you attach upholstery hose

The upholstery hose attaches to the front of the recovery (lower) tank. There is a square plastic duct which must be removed, or folded forward on recent models; and the end of the hose slides into the front of the tank. Be sure to replace the lid on the dirty water tank correctly. The connector on the soap tube attaches to the valve under the trap door on top of the nozzle.

I had the same problem. Try it upside down from what you're doing so the opening is facing up. Good luck!
